The Entomological Society of Central Florida is a club at the University of Central Florida centered around insects. Anyone can be a member and there are no fees. The only requirement is that you possess a curiosity about insects, which are often much-maligned in our culture, but which are actually immensely fascinating! We hold meetings monthly and if you would like to attend one, please join the e-mail list or check out our Facebook page (address and link below).
We are also very dedicated to outreach and are always interested in bringing a program to you, such as to a school, library, garden club, etc. Please inquire with details via the e-mail address or Facebook page and our Outreach Coordinator will get back to you as soon as possible. We know insects are often thought of as creepy pests, but give us a chance to try and change your mind!
